The class of 'U5 entered the Stockbridge School with the same
hopes and expectations as previous classes. Knowing our course of
study to he hut six months, we started at the beginning to take full
advantage of every opportunity which was within our resich.
Upon enrollment we were found to be thirty-six strong, four of
the members being of the fairer sex. We -were the second class to
enter Stockbridge under the one year war program. The first few
days were spent organizing our studies and getting accustomed to
the campus. Amid bewilderment, surprise and delight, acauaintances
with fellow students were made and life time friendships were formed.
At the election of officers, the following were chosen to rep-
resent the class J president, G-eorge G-reaney; vice president, Dick
Lawson; secretary, Molly d'Este and treasurer, Charlie Ciecko,
Dae to lack of students and time, athletics and other activ-
ities were limited. However, in an intramural six-man football
program, Stockbridge had a team. Also, in the way of athletics, we
contributed three of our members to the varsity basketball squad.
Many students accepted the cordial invitation extended by H.S.C,
students to take part in their activities. The only Stockbridge
event was the student- faculty farewell party, held at the Parley
Club House on February 26, 19^5.
At different times throughout the year, we lost some of our
members, but we also gained some, so at the completion of our
course we had a membership of twenty-six.
Our term of study on the campus has now drawn to a close and
we soon must start our placement work. The period of training will
find Stockbridge students in almost every corner of New England.
These six months have been filled with work and studies, but
the fun we have had along the way balances the load, and in the
future we can look back and recall our happy days as students. As
we came so must we go, but in leaving we can carry with us the
many unforgetable memories and friends which we have gained in
this, OUT year, as Stockbridge students.

REDEFLOmEKT and RECOHVERSION
The Stockbridge class of 1945 will long remember the many
happy experiences and close friendships of its college days.
Hardly had you closed your text-books in llarch to begin iiie
challenging jobs of placement training when the pealing bells
and pirayers of thanksgiving announced the historic event of V-E
day and the final victory on the battlefields of Europe, Then
followed the next phase of World "War II in quick succession with
the shattering explosions of atomic bombs on far-off Hiroshima,
and V-J day had arrived. 3he vreirs vrere over; the job was finished;
Hie men and, women of our armed forces could now return to homes
and dear ones and life would go on just as it had in other years
before the war. So most folks believed or seemed to think.
Redeployment became a new word in the language of the
military forces as vast plans -virent into effect to move the troops
back home. Factories and great industries of every sort finished
their vjar jobs as contracts terminated, and laid their plans
sv/iftly to change to peace-time production. After all, people
needed to purchase things long lacking due to war-imposed
scarcities, and there must be continuing jobs for the war-workers,
and new jobs available for the returning service-men,. Many of
these problems are still facing us today, but we can all be proud
of the amazing adaptability of our great country and its competent
You, the class of 1945, are now starting to build your life's
work, each individual one of you, on the foundation of knowledge,
skill, and vision which you may have secured here in some small
part. You are now, perforce, your own best student and there is
much to learn ahead. This is your period of reconversion in these
challenging days of peace. There are dangers now just as in the
days of war uriess you give your full heart, and faith, and strength
to the new tasks which face you. This nation cannot drift into a
peace worth while under the momentum only of past success, courage,
sacrifice and achievement. The history of the present is still to
be written and youth must vorite it, Ihis is your redeployment
period, too, and we hope success and satisfaction will crown your

Always dear they'll be.

MEN OF STOCKBRIDGE
(Tune - Fair Harvard)
Oh Stockbridge, thy sons this fair valley proclaim,
As the years brinf us back into June,
And our hearts ever quicken with pride for thy name,
As we sing this familiar old tune.
Tho' the days have been long, filled with work and with play.
All thy precepts shall guide us afar.
To the truth and the honor of honest work done,
As we follow thy radiant star,
■Oh, Spirit of Truth, be our guide thru the years,
^ay our eyes ever lift to the hills,
G-ive us strength for the tasks which the future shall bring,
And peace by the murmuring rills.
The ploughshare and reaper still call as of yore.
Our sons to the lure of the land,
And the lamps we are lighting in these hallowed halls,
Are Grleams from the star in thy hand.
